Bundesliga tips: Borussia Dortmund odds taken
FootyOn recommend Borussia Dortmund odds outright among Bundesliga tips with Bayern Munich in disarray after the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.
While German giants Bayern Munich make eyes at up-and-coming Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann as a replacement for Ancelotti, this is the precise opportunity Borussia Dortmund have been waiting for.
Although BVB’s European campaign is in tatters after back-to-back 3-1 Champions League defeats, they sit atop the Bundesliga with an unbeaten record and just one goal conceded.
Peter Bosz’s boys are playing some brilliant, breathtaking stuff on the domestic scene, so Borussia Dortmund odds of a best-price 4/1 with Paddy Power appeal.
Only Freiburg, who played for over an hour with 10 men against them, have kept BVB out in the Bundesliga.
Star striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has more goals (eight) than league games (six) so far and, barring injury, is guaranteed to get more.
Dortmund offer a lot more than the Gabon frontman going forward, though, as they’re averaging over three a match (19 so far).
That means Aubameyang simply spearheads an attacking ensemble which contains some new faces and notably neither injury-prone Marco Reus nor super sub Andre Schurrle.
Most of new boss Bosz’s summer acquisitions have gone straight into the first-team and flourished.
If attacking additions Maximilian Philipp (Freiburg) and Andriy Yarmolenko (Dynamo Kiev) aren’t scoring, then they’ve been setting up goals.
Youngsters Christian Pulisic, Alexander Isak and Jadon Sancho can also expect to figure.
In midfield, Dortmund have guile through Syrian-born Mahmoud Dahoud bought from Borussia Monchengladbach; while a remodelled defence looks imperious in league action.
French youngster Dan-Axel Zagadou (PSG) at left back and Turkey international Omer Toprak (Bayer Leverkusen) at centre half bring youth and Bundesliga experience respectively.
With Bayern axing Ancelotti after just two defeats in all competitions this term and sitting three points behind BVB in third, the Allianz Arena outfit look to have panicked.
Borussia Dortmund odds look a sensible bet, because current closest challengers Hoffeheim could fall away if Nagelsmann ends up in Munich.
